Beginning with Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon details and revealing that the Switch will be getting both DOOM and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Among the games to be featured during today's Nintendo Direct is the new RPG from Square Enix, which has the working (and somewhat ridiculous) title Project Octopath Traveler.

Project Octopath Traveler is being developed by the same team that made Bravely Default on the Nintendo 3DS. The full game will have a simultaneous worldwide release date at some point in 2018. Characters will have the chance to enhance certain abilities and take on different roles in group fights. For example, Olberic is a warrior who can challenge anyone to a duel, while Primrose is a dancer who uses "Allure" to convince fellow travelers to follow her anywhere.

Project Octopath Traveller isn't the catchiest name, but it does sum up what this game appears to be about quite well. It's unclear whether the different player characters will interact à la Seiken Densetsu 3, but either way, it looks like this game will be a blast to play.
